There have been rumors that Sheryl Crow, 49, and guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, 42, were a couple ever since Bramhall II produced Crow's 100 Miles From Memphis album last year.  

But Crowe wasn't saying anything, refusing to tell InStyle magazine if there was anyone special in her life when they interviewed her last year. Things must be heating up, since Crow just revealed to Prevention magazine that there was a special someone, without outright naming names.

When asked by the magazine how her new producer boyfriend was around her kids, Crow replied, "Really good. I've been in the situation where I've been involved with people and their kids, and if the relationship doesn't work out, it's heartbreak. So I'm keeping the relationship friend-based when we're around the kids. Luckily, we have a great foundation, having known each other for fifteen years."

For the record, the singer met Bramhall who was in Eric Clapton's touring band when she was dating the iconic guitarist, for whom she famously wrote "My Favorite Mistake" after they broke up. The twosome made their first first public appearance together at The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center's 2011 Spring Ball in New York last week.

If appearances account for anything, they seemed "very loving" according to witnesses. Here's hoping this won't be Crow's second favorite mistake. The title certainly won't go to Lance Armstrong, who Crow was engaged to - but famously broke off their engagement in 2006 - right before the wedding.
